Siemens Digital Industries Software Mentor’s PADS Professional software for PCB design now available for free to students and instructors
As part of its ongoing investment in higher education, Mentor, a Siemens business, today announced that students and instructors can download a free student edition of its premium PADS™ Professional Design Suite (version 2.7) desktop software for electronics design and analysis. A free, 12-month license for Mentor’s solution supporting the design, validation, and manufacture of PCB-centric systems is available now at https://www.pads.com/downloads/pads-professional-student/.
“The global electronics industry needs a robust stream of qualified engineering talent to meet the innovation challenges of the world’s most dynamic and fast-changing markets,” said AJ Incorvaia, senior vice president of the Electronic Board Systems division at Mentor, a Siemens business. “We are pleased to provide this premium platform at no cost for students looking for hands-on experience using professional, cutting-edge tools that are in demand by employers.”
PADS Professional delivers the industry’s only fully-integrated design and analysis solution that combines capture, layout, signal integrity analysis, and 3D into one tool. The platform is powered by Xpedition™ software technology – the same design tool used by many of the world’s most successful technology organizations.
“I have experience using several PCB design tools, but my proficiency in using Mentor’s PADS Professional platform has proven to be of interest to prospective employers,” said Joshua Biggio, May-2019 BSEE graduate of University of Colorado. “My ability to jump right into new projects played a key role in helping me to secure a position at a Tier One global semiconductor company."
PADS Professional Student Edition includes several “Getting Started” resources that help students traverse the learning curve quickly, including learning tutorials, how-to videos, and self-paced training.
